Overview

The definitive collection of Mick Rock's photographs—both intimate and iconic—portraying one of the world's greatest rock bands at the zenith of their fameThe early 1970s were a time of experimentation and excess, glitter and glam. Mick Rock was fast establishing his reputation as the inimitable glam rock photographer—having shot Bowie, Iggy Pop, and Lou Reed—when he met the new and largely unknown group, Queen. He first photographed the band in November 1973 at their breakthrough gig at Imperial College, London, beginning a collaboration that lasted through the mid-1970s as Queen rocketed to fame, and resulted in a wealth of defining images. From his vast archive, Mick Rock has selected over 250 exceptional images—from the iconic album cover shoots for Queen II and Sheer Heart Attack to live performances, as well as unseen outtakes, test Polaroids and informal shots of the band members at home, in the studio and backstage. This was an extraordinary era in rock history and ‘The Man Who Shot The Seventies’ offers a privileged insight. Classic Queen is the perfect portrait of one of the world’s greatest rock bands at a pivotal time in their career.
